Annual Alberta Saskatoon Pie Contest

Nothing speaks of the joys of summer better than a homemade Saskatoon pie! Our annual pie baking competition is open to all bakers of every skill level. We invite you to roll up your sleeves, pull out the flour, and show off your creativity in the kitchen. If you aren't a baker, come out and be a judge in the People's Choice vote and experience the deliciousness of one of our finest native berries.
